Extraordinary ideas that move the world forward
Propellantless propulsion system could keep satellites in orbit, reduce space junk
One of the main factors limiting the life of satellites is how much propellant they can carry to execute orbital corrections. Now scientists at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid have come up with a propellantless propulsion system that also doubles as an electric generator. Using the Earth's magnetic field interacting with a two-km (1.24-mi) long aluminum tether, the system could be used to dispose of space debris and boost the orbit of the International Space Station (ISS)...

In photos: Trucks and SUVs give the 2018 Detroit auto show some serious brawn
As much as it is a great car show, the 2018 North American International Auto Show might just be more of a truck and 4x4 show. In a country where pickup trucks rule, it's no small story when each of the Big 3 shows an all-new pickup truck, especially when one of those pickups has been entirely absent from the market for the better part of a decade. Not to be outdone, each of Japan's Big 3 is wowing attendees with a wild concept SUV or two. And before you even get through the front door, you're hit in the eyes by an orange hunk of resin with a classic Mercedes G-Wagen trapped inside. Trucks and SUVs are definitely a big highlight, if not the big highlight...

Sharkoon Launches Quickstore One USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C Storage Device DIY Kit
Sharkoon this week introduced a new DIY kit that lets users build their own external storage device featuring a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface with a USB Type-C connector. The new Quickstore One kit is based on ASMedia’s latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 controller that can offer up to 10 Gbps of bandwidth. With that said, however, the enclosure is designed for SATA drives, so its external interface is considerably faster than its internal one.
The Sharkoon Quickstore One is the company’s third-generation USB 3.1 enclosure for external HDDs and SSDs. The chassis is made of brushed aluminum and plastic, it measures 130×83×16 mm and weighs 92.5 grams when not populated with a drive (once equipped, its weight will increase to 180 – 240 grams, depending on t...GIGABYTE at CES 2018: Aero 15x and AORUS X9 Gaming Laptops
Among some of the other announcements GIGABYTE made this year at CES 2018, it also displayed some of their existing gaming laptops in the Aero 15X (now available in pure black) as well as the AORUS X9, a very thin, dual GPU laptop using true laptop mechanical switches.AORUS X9
The AORUS X9’s claim to fame is how thin it is and able to shoehorn in dual Geforce GTX 1070s in the chassis, as well as its Kailh brown mechanical keys with 2.5mm of key travel. Gigabyte states it is the thinnest laptop in the world with dual GPUs and mechanical keys. The flagship X9 laptop has a 17.3-inch panel available in two resolutions, either QHD (2560x1440) 120Hz WVA panel, or a 4K UHD (3840x2160) with Adobe RGB.

ASRock introduced its second-generation Micro-STX gaming desktops with discrete graphics processors at CES 2018. The new DeskMini GTX systems are based on the Intel Z370 platform and support Intel’s six-core Coffee Lake processors.
When Intel introduced its 5” × 5” initiative (an initial name for Mini-STX) back in 2015, the company wanted to create a highly-integrated small form-factor platform with interchangeable processors for PC makers. The platform was not supposed to support any add-in-boards, and therefore wouldn't overlap with Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX. ASRock was among the first brands to jump on the Mini-STX bandwagon in 2016, but it did not take the company long to adopt the form-factor for compact gaming computers. In 2017, t...Kingston at CES 2018: A 6.4 TB U.2 Enterprise SSD with Four M.2 Behind a PEX Chip
This year at CES, one of the interesting things at the Kingston suite was a demonstration of its new enterprise-grade DCU1000 SSDs. The current U.2 drives use four consumer-grade KC1000 M.2 SSDs behind a PCIe switch to offer up to 3.2 TB of useful capacity as well as a massive aggregated random read/write performance. The capacity of the overall drive at this point is limited to the M.2 drives being used.
The Kingston DCU1000 is a U.2 backplane internally, with four M.2 slots, integrated power loss protection, and the Avago ExpressLane PEX 8725 24-lane 10-port PCIe switch. The switch enables four M.2 drives to be used over a single U.2/SFF-8639 interface (PCIe 3.0 x4) and supports hot plugging. Kingston uses four KC1000 SSDs with cust...iBuyPower at CES 2018: RGB LED Lighting... on Power Cables
There's almost nothing left inside a PC that could be fitted with RGB LEDs. At least that was our assumption until we came across iBuyPower's suite at CES this year. For the person that has RGB everything, how about some RGB cables to go with it?
Technucally iBP isn't adding LEDs to cables themselves here - they are lit up through a cable management piece which connects to the cables as opposed to the cables themselves. The RGB LED cables to provide their light through cable management attachments which mount to individual cables shining their light down and around the cable path. iBuyPower wanted to integrate the lighting right into the cables themselves, however, after testing they found it was not practical as the wires were too ri...The AnandTech Podcast, Episode 43: CES 2018 Headlines and Highlights
The annual CES show is biggest of AnandTech’s main six shows of the year, and with it comes a wall-to-wall meeting schedule with press events starting two days before the show is supposed to start. After clocking up the miles and calling many taxis, we managed to get an hour before flying home to discuss the headlines and highlights from the show. Key topics included the Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA keynotes, and we go through a number of prominent show announcements that might have passed you by.HyperX at CES 2018: Predator DDR4 with IR Sensors for Better RGB Sync
HyperX announced it has designed IR communication channels into each of their new HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB modules which will allow multiple modules to sync in LED lighting. In other words, each DRAM module has an IR sensor on it in order to detect the stick next to it (during startup, the module furthest away from the CPU is determined to be the ‘master’). If the sensor is blocked, the RGB will be static.
The reason for this method of sync, HyperX says, is because different motherboard vendors have different ways of implementing memory traces, which can affect RGB LED timing. Motherboard vendors typically use either a daisy chain or a T-Topology design rule, which both have pros and cons when it comes to timing - with this IR method,...iBuyPower at CES: Project Case Builder, for Better Case Customization
LAS VEGAS, NV - iBuyPower has unveiled a couple of new items at CES 2018 this year including its cool looking Snowbird case side panel, new LED cables ties, and also 'Project Case Builder'. Project Case Builder is an internal modular case for customers when buying a pre-built system, and is designed to be useful to customers with special requests, or eSports teams who would like full customization of their chassis.
Over the years, we have seen a lot of new devices and technology allowing people to upgrade their PCs components. But when talking about cases, outside of swapping a panel here or there, the case is pretty much a static entity in the system. Only one major chassis manufacturer has decided to go above and beyond this. iBuyPo...

Resetting and DFU mode are the last two steps on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus troubleshooting ladder.

DFU (device recovery mode) mode, in contrast, is the last resort: It puts your iPhone into a state where it can still communicate with iTunes on Windows or Mac and be restored, but it won't trip the boot loader or iOS, in case your software has become royally borked.

The iPhone X has not been one of Apple's best-selling iPhone models in recent years. In fact, Apple is not selling as many shipments as analysts have predicted. While a number of 20-30 million units was estimated for Q1, Ming-Chi Kuo has given a new estimated number of 18 million unit shipments. KGI cited a couple of reasons that the iPhone X didn't do as well. Analysts were counting on the Chinese market to make up these numbers, but a longer smartphone cycle for Chinese phone users' and the belief that the iPhone X's notched-display did not provide as much usable area as a 5.5-inch...Nokia 6 (2018) or Nokia 7 gets certified by the FCC ahead of its US market debut
Nokia has already promised an "awesome" MWC 2018 press event, and one of the things it may announce next month in Barcelona is a US release for one of its newest smartphones. Two models of the same device, in single and dual-SIM iterations, have recently been certified by the FCC - a necessary step before any such launch can take place. Right now it's unclear whether we're talking about the Nokia 7 unveiled in China last year or the newly outed Nokia 6 (2018). All we have are the model numbers to go by: TA-1045 and TA-1016. We're guessing it's either the Nokia 7 or the Nokia 6 (2018)...Possible Samsung Galaxy J8 (2018) spotted in benchmark listings

It's the fall of 2019 and America is paralyzed.
A wave of cyberattacks have crippled America's banks, sent a blackout rolling across the East Coast, and disabled almost all U.S. internet infrastructure.
America's response is nuclear. A submarine off the coast of North Korea launches ballistic missiles at the tiny, reclusive country, marking the first use of nuclear weapons in battle since 1945. In response, China and Russia prepare for war, and the world watches as an all-out nuclear exchange is suddenly a very real proposition.
This scenario, previously impossible, would be just one of the many that the U.S. government would have to prepare for under the Pentagon's new proposals for how to respond to cyberattacks. Read more...More ab...This company claims to sell the world's first odorless socks. We put them to the test

Scientists say the fossilized remains of a brittle star that lived 435 million years ago belong to a new species.
The fossil was named Crepidosoma doyleii, after the paleontologist who discovered it. Eamon Doyle was a Ph.D. student when he discovered the remains of the thumbnail-sized creature in the late 1980s, embedded in a layer of fossils on a hillside in the Maam Valley in Ireland.
Though this species of brittle star (which are closely related to starfish) first developed nearly half a billion years ago, its modern day descendants are remarkably similar.
